(Santa’s FAQ)

This is so different than the usual visit with Santa, where long lines and feeling rushed are common. We have plenty of time for even the shyest children to warm up and relax. Our Santa is a master at distracting and getting kids involved in stories, which helps soothe their nerves. The kids who have a million questions for Santa can finally get answers since they have what seems like all the time in the world to spend with him. 

Before your Santa Experience, you’ll provide us with details about the children so Santa can weave these little facts into the conversation with them. Kids are blown away when Santa knows what they like, talks about their pets, and congratulates them on something they’ve done well – whether it’s getting good marks at school or being a wonderful helper at home!

“Thanks for making my grandson’s visit with Santa so special. He tells me about it every time I see him.”

With plenty of time to enjoy their visit with Santa, your kids will be able to chat with him and hear stories about life at the North Pole, why naughty kids get coal in their stocking (it’s actually a good thing!), maybe sing a Christmas carol or two, and even tell him what they want for Christmas.

Far from the long lines at the mall and without feeling rushed by the people waiting behind you, your child can visit Santa one-to-one in our private studio. What a magical experience for your children!

Santa Claus brings joy, happiness, and love, and this unique experience, up close, personal, and fun, will transport children into a land of wonder they’ll remember fondly.

Your children will visit with the big guy himself while we create timeless portraits of them together.

It’s amazing to see the children’s eyes fill with wonder as they get to spend quality personal time with Santa Claus.

During this time our skilled photographers are capturing the magic we’ll use to create timeless portraits you’ll cherish forever. Santa is a professional at getting the kids into heartwarming poses you’ll love, and we’ll add our special magic to create beautiful works of art for you.

“The kids (and mom and dad) had so much fun with Santa. Thank you!”

The fee you pay when reserving your experience covers the magical visit with Santa Claus, the custom made Nice List certificate, and the creative fee for the photography we’ll be doing.

We’ll schedule a view and order session for the adults where you’ll be able to see and order portraits from the session and we’ll apply your $75 credit to your order.

There are lots of great ways to enjoy your portraits, including wall art, albums, gift prints, Christmas cards, and more. There is no minimum and no requirement to purchase anything. Most families spend anywhere from $300 to $1500 or more.

We’ll schedule your in-studio view and order session for the days after your visit with Santa. You’ll be able to see your portraits projected in amazing detail so you can select your favourites. You can choose from wall portraits, gift prints, albums, a fun photo app for your phone, and more.

Think about where you might want to display your portraits, and we can help you pick the perfect size and style for your home.

Once you’ve picked your favourites, we skillfully transform what the camera captured into beautiful works of art. Your portraits will become cherished heirlooms your children will appreciate years from now, when they show them to their children.

You’ll have your $75 credit to use, and we’ll help you get exactly what you want!

Each session is exclusively for immediate family members. Cousins, best friends, and other children who are not siblings require their own family session. If you would like children from two families photographed together, please book consecutive sessions and let us know – we’ll be sure to make it happen!

We follow all Provincial COVID safety standards. We’ve designed your Whitesell Portrait Art Santa Experience to include safety protocols including one-way flow within the studio, ample separation between families, etc.

We schedule only one family in the studio at a time and if there is any overlap (who doesn’t want to be early to see Santa?!?) families will be in different parts of the studio.

Our staff has been fully vaccinated.

Our Santa Claus promotes universal family values like love, caring, and giving, and he congratulates each child for their efforts to be good. When we phone to find out the details about your child, you’ll be able to let us know your own family and religious values so Santa can support those. He’s thrilled to wish your child Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, or??

We welcome friends with special needs. The studio is wheelchair accessible.

Our studio is LGBQT friendly and we are pleased to welcome all families. Of course Santa Claus loves everyone and supports all family structures

…and they want to make sure we let you know that this offer cannot be combined with any other offer. The credit has no cash value, is non-transferable, and can only be used for portraits from your 2021 Santa Experience session.
